Week 3

Theme of the week: Making Adjustments 

You may not be able to stick to the training schedule every week. Sometimes things come up – work, school, girlfriends, boyfriends, whatever.  The point is you have to be able to adapt your training to fit your lifestyle.  

For example: I had a full weekend off with basically nothing to do.  Normally I take weekends off from training in the beginning stages, but I knew I had a busy week coming up.  So on Saturday I decided to do a 1/2 mile swim, 4 mile run and on Sunday 12 miles on the bike.  I took Monday off, did a normal strength training workout (shoulders & arms) on Tuesday and combined the swim and bike on Wednesday.  Today is strength training (chest & back) and tomorrow will be a 4-5 mile run. The break down looks like this: 

  • Monday: OFF
  • Tuesday: Shoulders & Arms
  • Wednesday: 1/2 mile swim (30 lengths, 15 laps), 10 mile bike (2 hour break in between)
  • Thursday: Chest & Back
  • Friday: 4-5 mile run 
  • Saturday: 12 mile bike 
  • Sunday: OFF

Basically the only adjustment I made was combining Monday’s workout with Wednesday’s and adding an extra bike day on Saturday. Good luck.
